The Infinity Of The Creator And His Creation

260.01The Creator made the desire of the creatures small, like the Malchut of the world of infinity. Infinity meant that the desire was completely filled, that is, without boundaries, like a full glass.

But then this desire must develop to infinite proportions. Due to the fact that the Creator created the creation, the desire to enjoy, the opposite of Himself, this gives us the opportunity to reveal the Creator without any boundaries and restrictions, without any stopping on the way until the end of correction and after it.

When we finish all the corrections, covering the whole desire to enjoy with the intention to bestow, then further progress will continue in other forms, no longer due to lack. However, the endless movement forward will continue anyway because this is the only way to reveal the infinity of the Creator.

Darkness Intensifies The Light

207The spiritual path consists of two sensations: positive and negative. On one hand, we reveal deficiency, desire, and sorrow, and on the other hand, fulfillment, light, and sweetness. These two sensations must be present because it is impossible to feel one without the other.

If I do not imagine a great, important goal in front of me, I will not feel the need for fulfillment. Therefore, we must prepare ourselves for both the feeling of lack and the expectation of fulfillment, for joy and sorrow, that support and do not neutralize each other. In spirituality, the right and left lines do not interfere with each other, but on the contrary, they both connect in the middle line and give us the correct perception of spirituality.

Therefore, we need to rise above the suffering and overcome the feeling of emptiness, but the main thing in the work is to maintain a balance, a correct connection in the middle line, between one and the other. If we feel only suffering, it is not called a spiritual vessel, and if we only enjoy a pleasant sensation, it is not a spiritual fulfillment.

Both sensations must be present in the created being, and only when they are correctly combined can a person work correctly and come closer to the Creator. In this case, the main thing for him is not his feeling of emptiness or fulfillment but the contentment of the owner, and he is fulfilled from his service to the Creator, from the adhesion with Him that he has achieved.

Darkness and light, night and day, sorrow and joy, all of these come together and nothing disappears or is extinguished; each completes the other. If we manage to connect them in this way, we will create a vessel for the revelation of the Creator in which the deficiency, the screen, and the reflected light are combined.

The Creator creates the creation from complete zero and gives it all the means to achieve a perfect state of similarity to the Creator. Therefore, we should not try to diminish the light or the darkness. We need both of them together for the revelation of the Creator. When the right and left lines complete each other and are combined in the middle line, we discover inside the condition for the revelation of the Creator.

Darkness emphasizes the light, intensifies it. It is like a candle burning in the dark with oil in it that permeates the wick and allows it to burn.

We need to monitor ourselves so we do not just chase a good feeling, but add darkness and sorrow to it in order to build the correct Kli. The Creator gives us only a faint spark and we must kindle from it a large bright flame that will illuminate the entire reality. This is possible only through increasing the Kli.

The desire and the light positioned in front of each other should not extinguish each other. We should aim for the middle line so that the wick and the oil work together, radiating light from their burning. All problems, difficulties, questions, and limitations, must be consciously attached to the work so that with the help of friends and lessons, darkness and light will connect into one unbreakable whole. Darkness is intended to intensify the light.

Train To Get Weaker

622.01The more an athlete trains, the stronger he or she becomes, that is, the more one strengthens one’s egoism. Therefore, he is always pleased with his achievements.

A Kabbalist, on the contrary, wants to weaken his egoism through the studies in order to rise above it. This is why the state of egoism seems to be unfortunate, but for a Kabbalist this is a desirable state because he wants to conquer his egoism.

Finish Line Or Penalty Circle?

750.03Evolution will certainly lead us to equivalence of form with the Creator, voluntarily or through suffering; there are only two ways. At first, the whole world develops unconsciously, only due to the forces of nature. But starting from a certain stage of development, a person breaks away from his animal existence and develops a person in himself, a spiritual form similar to the Creator.

Such people can attract an upper force to themselves and accelerate their development, and through themselves, as through an open channel, transmit this power of development to everyone else. As a result, all evil will turn into good, but we must contribute to this by becoming active participants in this process.

We are at the finish line of the process of development, and therefore it is worth taking an active part in it, so that we are not thrown back. Otherwise, there is a danger that it will turn out like in a child’s game when a player each time moves a few steps forward, but after the next roll of the dice suddenly is sent back almost to the very start of the game.

If we want to avoid such a return to the penalty circle of evolution, we should observe the laws of nature, the laws of the Creator, and try to unite more and more and connect with the upper force. And then more and more light will flow through us into the world.

The world is not to blame for anything, everything depends on the part of “Israel” who strive for the Creator, those who connect all the nations, this whole circle with the Creator through a line, a direct channel.

Neutral Researcher

294.1A Kabbalist rejoices in the bad just as in the good. However, this does not mean he is a masochist because a Kabbalist does not attribute suffering to himself but only to egoism, which was created by the Creator. And he perceives egoism not as his own desire to enjoy but as a force coming from the Creator.

He looks at his animalistic body as a researcher. In the animalistic body the force of reception, egoism, is revealed, but a Kabbalist wants the force of bestowal to be revealed in him. He sees himself as a completely neutral researcher, not belonging to either reception or giving.
